Still without my Planck Rev. 6. I emailed the creator of it again to follow up. Using a full-size keyboard at work and the keyboard on a laptop at home for now. Might build a low-profile 60% (using low-profile switches), to might past this issue.

I do like clicks & clacks, depending on their pitch and signature.

I'm a professionnal developper, I use them for at least 10h per day. As such, for me, the most important is the comfort when using them. From actuation force to key profiles, key layout to keyboard / pointing device distance....

For example, I do not use scrollwheel as I find them very stressing and tiring after a while.

Nice ! What keyboard is it ? Any link to a build log ?

I didn't take many pictures while I was building it unfortunately. I'll try to dig up the ones I did take tonight though. It's a Corne keyboard, or CRKBD. It's also known as the helidox: https://mechboards.co.uk/shop/all/helidox-kit/#pcb-option

It has hotswap and low profile versions, mine's hotswap. Per key rgb and rgb underglow, and I got a local sign making company to cut acrylic plates for it based on the templates here: https://github.com/foostan/crkbd/tree/master/corne-classic/acrylic_plate
